Hell is a Hole. Heaven Sent a Ladder.
There is a billboard near where I live that asks: “Where are you going, Heaven or Hell?” The answer is clear. Hell, as a place of eternal damnation, is a fabrication intended to control through fear. This is obvious to anyone who is willing to step out of the darkness of fear and into the light of their deeper experience. A more reflective understanding is that Hell is a hole. It feels like being trapped in a dark hole all alone and unable to find your way out. While it is possible to feel all alone, it is not actually possibility to be all alone. Life is all around you. You cannot escape this, except to enter the darkness of imagination which can be very persuasive. Discovering this great truth can free your mind from the experience of Hell that is so prevalent in this world. Yet it takes more than just a moment of realization to truly be free from the Hell hole experience. It takes receiving a gift from Heaven.
Hell exists in our imagination. Heaven is real. It is not what you see when you look up. That is the sky and the universe beyond. What Heaven looks like really isn’t relevant. What it feels like is what will help you in life. It feels like love and total inclusion. You gain access to this through following what you deeply know.
There is a part of you that can truly know. This is distinct from thinking, feeling, wanting or fearing. This part of you that can truly know is called Knowledge, in the New Message from God. Other traditions call it gnosis, the deeper mind, the still small voice within. It is God’s gift to you.
You lose access to Heaven when you are in the dark hole of imagination. You must climb out. When you are in a hole you climb out with a ladder. Heaven has sent a ladder. The ladder has steps, steps you take to climb out of the hole. The steps are contained in Steps to Knowledge: The Book of Inner Knowing, by Marshall Vian Summers. Take the steps to Knowledge. http://www.stepstoknowledge.com
